Idea 110 Democracy
Democracy is all about government in which all eligible citizens have a supposedly equal say in the decisions that affect their lives.
It is defined as
Government by the people, exercised either directly or through elected representatives.
A political or social unit that has such a government.
The common people, considered as the primary source of political power.
it enables majority rule.
and in it are the principles of social equality and respect for the individual within a community
It was not until the 20th Century that Democracy as we know it began to spread and suffrage (the vote) became universal including lower orders and women. Now are democracies are representative with elected MPs (in the UK) who reflect their constituents desires.
As Churchill is quoted as saying...
democracy is the worst form of government except all the others that have been tried.
The BBC has some interesting perspective on the history of early democracy at this site
